This is a terrific, yet underappreciated series. Great production values, real drama and suspense, and based on actual events. It's a shame it came along later in the game and a shame it wasn't given more of a chance.

Subject: something different
There are lots of radio shows about spies in World War II, but this one manages to take a different angle on the business of foreign intrigue. The agents are often non-professionals, and find themselves in strange situations and locales. I particularly liked "Roof of the World" and "Recommendation from Rommel".

These stories are "suggested" by actual cases in the archives of the OSS, which allows the scriptwriters some latitude to come up with great stories without being bound to exact events.
